In Italy 2 million of teenagers spend their days on Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat and in these last 2 years, the cases of cyberbullying have increased dramatically, as well as the sexting phenomenon, the messages of a sexual nature via SMS and chat. 

Now the law will be debated in the Senate for final approval.
